Keeping these boards spam free (from inadvertent & deliberate spam) is important and hard work so I need your help! Here are two things you can do to contribute:1) If you see spam, let me know.
At the end of the post you'll see a "Report to moderator" link. Even if you're not sure, it doesn't hurt to trigger a notice for me to check it out. The poster will not be notified of this and I won't share who triggered it regardless. I just appreciate the extra eyes. It's easy and if your logged in just takes a second for you to alert me to the post.2) Try to keep your topics contained here to be less spammy yourself.
If you're always trying to send people elsewhere to see what your talking about with links, that's advertising not engaging. If it looks like an ad vs. a question or discussion, I removed it (and may delete and/or ban your account). NO ADVERTISING ALLOWED ON THE BOARDS!
A forum post should start a discussion that will continue right here where it started. Often, of course, external linking is useful and needed (for example the Review My Blog board) but if you're only here to advertise something that doesn't contribute to this community and create a dialog... it can be what is considered spam. Remember to use your signature for linking back to your blog. That's cool
